An image has been posted on the official Twitter page of the popular game Fortnite: Battle Royale that contains what could potentially be a huge teaser.

The image is an advertisement for the new Chromium Outfit skin and Persuader pickaxe, but fans and players have paid attention to something else entirely.

This was the image that was tweeted on the Fortnite Twitter page on May 10th.

While initially difficult to spot, many were quick to realize that one of the dog tags worn by the Chromium character features what could be the logo of the upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.

 

While not exactly identical, the logo on the dog tag features what appear to be four orange lines, which many are comparing to the unmistakable orange Roman Numerals that make up the Black Ops 4 logo.

For those who may be confused as to how or why this would make any sense, there have been heavy rumors and unconfirmed reports that the next title in the Call of Duty franchise will have a Battle Royale mode.

Furthermore, the CEO of CoD’s publishing company Activision specifically mentioned Fortnite by name in their recent financial call, describing the game’s strong success as a positive direction for the online gaming community.

If indeed Activision and developer Treyarch do decide to include a Battle Royale mode in Black Ops 4, perhaps teaming up with Fortnite’s successful developer Epic Games would be the best approach.

However, until anything regarding this is officially discussed or confirmed, than this potential teaser should only be considered speculation.

After revealing Black Ops Cold War’s Zombies mode back in September, Treyarch has now done a deep dive into all the changes coming to the mode. It seems like, in some regards, it’s going to be a completely different experience this time around.

If you’re excited about Black Ops Cold War’s iteration of Zombies but are hungry for more details, then you’ll be happy to know that Treyarch just delivered.

Thanks to a new blog post, the developer has given fans a deep dive into all the new changes coming to the game. While the developer ended up confirming a number of different features that previously leaked a few days back, they also revealed some wholly new information.

New perks for Zombies

While the developer officially confirmed the six perks that will be available at launch, including the exact statistics they will change, more will be announced when new maps get added to the game, in true Treyarch fashion.

The ones currently implemented, however, are sure to please longtime fans.

  • Jugger-Nog: 50% increase in health
  • Quick Revive: 50% increase in health regen speed
  • Speed Cola: 15% increase in reload speed
  • Stamin-Up: Increase in sprinting speed (percentage unclear)
  • Deadshot Daquri: ADS automatically moves sights to enemy weak spot (aim-assist)
  • Elemental Pop: Every bullet has a chance to apply random Ammo Mod effect

Black Ops Cold War Zombies weapons and scorestreaks

While weapon rarities isn’t new information for Black Ops Cold War Zombies, as it was previously announced by Treyarch during the initial reveal, the developer has finally gone into more detail about what it all means.

Like Warzone, each weapon that you pull from the wall or Mystery Box will be a certain weapon: Common, Uncommon, Rare, Epic, and Legendary. As expected, the higher the weapon rarity, the higher damage it deals and the more attachments it’ll have.

In addition, the mystery box will now contain scorestreaks on top of that, which was easily one of the coolest part of the original reveal trailer.

  • Combat Bow
  • Sentry Turret
  • War Machine
  • Chopper Gunner
  • Self-Revive

Right now, it’s unclear if the only way that players will be able to get their hands on these valuable items will be through the Mystery Box, although previous leaks have indicated that Zombies will also be able to drop them.

All weapons in Black Ops Cold War, including the ones pulled from Mystery Boxes, have rarities.

New Exfil feature

The final feature that Treyarch revealed new details about was the new Exfil feature, which allows players to end their match before they die. According to the devs, you’ll only be able to do this from Round 10 onwards.

That being said, if you’re able to reach the extraction point within the time allotted, you’ll receive extra XP, as well as some Raw Aetherium Crystals, which can be used to upgrade your weapons.

All of this, combined with all the leaks we know including the armor changes, the upgrade system, and the salvage system, which have now all been confirmed by Treyarch, makes it seem like this year’s iteration is going to be wild.
